3-Heights™ PDF to EMF Converter – convert PDF pages to EMF streams
The component 3-Heights™ PDF to EMF Converter allows for converting every page of a PDF file to an EMF file. Being the native graphic format of Windows, EMF (Enhanced Metafile Format) plays a key role in applications such as the embedding of scalable vector graphics in documents, report generators, client-server solutions for PDF viewers and much more.
A special feature of the component is its handling with embedded fonts. One has the option to extract embedded fonts and use them together with the EMF page or create an EMF page on its own and use matching pre-installed fonts.
